When will I get Windows 7?

It might seem that this question has already been answered with “October 22nd” but there are numerous different ways for people to access Microsoft software these days so here’s a complete list:

OEM’s: 2 days after RTM (Release to Manufacture)

Technet and MSDN Subscribers: August 6th in English and October 1st for other languages. *Update* The download will appear, as if by magic (!), at 6pm GMT tonight…so not long left!

MS Partners via the Partner Network: August 16th in English and October 1st for other languages

MS Action Pack Subscribers: August 23rd in English and October 1st for other languages

Volume Licence customers with Software Assurance: August 7th in English and a couple of weeks later for other languages

Volume Licence customers without Software Assurance: September 1st

Home Pack Confirmed:

Microsoft have confirmed (via the Windows Team Blog) that there will be a Windows Home Premium Family Pack, which can be installed on up to 3 machines! However-they have said it will be available in “selected markets” and no more…I’m waiting to hear back as to whether the UK has been selected 🙂 21-07-09 Microsoft have told me they’ll be releasing “more details on the family pack in the near future” so keep checking back for updates!
